Long and Pennington both Pro Bowl alternates

New, comments

I hardly ever say this - so mark this day on your calendar.

Nice job by Armando Salguero.  Armando, you see, did some leg-work and found out that both Jake Long and Chad Pennington are Pro Bowl alternates.

Long was selected as a first alternate - meaning if any of the 3 tackles named to the team decide not to play in the Pro Bowl due to injury, Long will be on his way to Hawaii.

Pennington was selected as a second alternate, with the first alternate being Philip Rivers.  So he would need two AFC QBs to drop out in order to make the Pro Bowl team for the first time in his career.

Congrats to both Jake and Chad - though we all know both, especially Chad, were big-time snubs!
